Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation by Cyril Bernard Lucas

By Cyril Bernard Lucas

Atomic and molecular beams are hired in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser quantity, within the organic sciences. those beams let atoms to be studied lower than collision-free stipulations and make allowance the research in their interplay with different atoms, charged debris, radiation, and surfaces. Atomic and Molecular Beams: creation and Collimation explores the newest suggestions for generating a beam from any substance in addition to from the dissociation of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and the halogens.


The ebook not just offers the fundamental expressions necessary to beam layout but in addition bargains in-depth insurance of:




  • Design of ovens and furnaces for atomic beam production

  • Creation of atomic beams that require greater evaporation temperatures

  • Theory of beam formation together with the Clausing equation and the transmission probability

  • Construction of collimating arrays in metals, plastics, glass, and different materials

  • Optimization of the layout of atomic beam collimators


While many assessment articles and books speak about the applying of atomic beams, few supply technical info in their creation. targeting functional program within the laboratory, the writer seriously stories over 800 references to check the atomic and molecular beam formation theories with real experiments. Atomic and Molecular Beams: construction and Collimation is a finished resource of fabric for experimentalists dealing with the layout of any atomic or molecular beam and theoreticians wishing to increase the theory.
